for the record. i've met and talked with them. they set these holding company mechanisms above pepco so they make money off the tax system. they are one of the worst utilities in america when it comes to service. i wrote about this some years ago. the "washington post" did a big investigation because he got to be so bad. by looking municipal systems to have extraordinarily good service records because they are run as a public service for the community rather than to make a profit. so pepco is unusual but they are worse than a. i go to the book and to show how these achilles are being hollowed out. largely people who are career utility people, and i'm clearly no fan of monopolies, but you understood and to run the business as well in terms of service, have been replaced by financial folks. they have been hobbling out these utilities. so in california, pacific gas and electric got rate increases we could replace power poles on a 50 year cycle. that's reasonable. they are test latest power poles on average last 50 years. a few will last 100. on average 50. they replace poles on a 775 year cycle. the

they are run as a public service for the community rather than a profit. so pepco is not unusual in that regard. i go to the book and show how utilities are being hollowed out. largely people who are career utility people and i'm a fan of monopolies here comes that of understood in terms of service have been replaced by financial folks and they've been hollowing out these utilities. southern california, pacific gas and mike are reading pieces to replace our hopes on a 50 year cycle. the testimonies power poles on average. on average 50 years. they replace poles on a 775 year cycle. they put up about three dozen polls a year, so the power poles today if nothing changes supposedly will have two last until 2775. now if you're a competitive business, you don't reinvest in the business. you don't replace equipment as it wears out. you go broke. if you're a monopoly utility, the disaster comes for a much powerful collapse for me so you need emergency rate increase. .. that happened after these blackouts did they make a difference or is it just a lot of lip service? >> i think this is a fundamental pr

any type tips you can give her to keep cost down. >> we did turn to pepco and they said there are easier ways to lower energy use and save money on your electric bill. first, set your thermostat to 768 degrees during the day and 60 at night. dressing warmly and lowering that thermostat you can lower 3% per degree that you lower the thermostat below 70 on your heating bill. you'll drop that thing 3%. next change your filters in your machines. this helps maintain the heating system by making sure it is running efficiently and winterize your windows by using weather stripping and caulk. and if you have a question you'd like us to consider, send it to on facebook by searching liz crenshah's consumer watch. >>> how can you donate items like clothing and shoes to those affected by hurricane sandy. can leaving your lights on in a laundry room help those hang drying clothes dry faster. find out the answers at 5:00. we'll see you then. >> i did that this week. >> join me at 5:00. >> the wheels just rolled right over them. >> were those the ones you were
